founder and photographer Daniel Regan was recently commissioned by WEX Photographic to tell his story on how photography is not only therapeutic for him, but also saved his life. In this short film he discusses how he uses photography to be mindful and engage in the world around him.

A photographer focused on well-being and mental health, Daniel not only creates work exploring his own mental health history, but facilitates workshops around how to use photography for emotional expression, as well as his own visual diary practice. View the short film made by Forward below.

“When I look back at the relationship that I have with photography and how helpful it’s been it’s really clear that photography has definitely saved my life.”
